April and May we target specs. June through December we target reds. July, August, and September we target jacks and reds. January through March is pretty slow fishing all-around. If the weather allows, we can chase bull reds at the beaches.
Reds and specs are the main target April through December. July through September brings 15 to 25 pound jack crevalle and bull reds into the bay. Some sight fishing for reds on the grass flats during the summer, but most fishing for red fish and trout is blind casting the docks on Mobile Bay and the cuts thru the flats.
Fishing in the Mobile-Tensaw Delta is a summer and fall event. March is mostly along the beaches in the gulf. April and May are in Mobile Bay.
January through March is controlled by cold fronts that move thru the gulf coast. It can be warm with a southern breeze and rainy one day or cool with a northern breeze that is quite strong the next. In between, the east wind will blow at 20 knots. If we are lucky, we can get a day of light wind between the fronts to fish the gulf beaches.
April and May are warmer months, but the east wind can still be in the 20-knot range.
June, July, August, and September are hot. Light winds in the morning with a sea breeze in the afternoon.
October through December is the time for cold fronts to start passing through the gulf coast. This time of year, we in the Mobile-Tensaw Delta and protected from rough water.
